Nice swarm going on that torrent. I hittin' about 250 kB/s. My new 500 GB hd will be here in a couple of days. I have 30 GB to burn. I'd love to give my best AUD tapes to MOTB perhaps. They could transfer all the tapes into new housings. In the process of repacking the cassette reels, they could repair wrinkles in the tapes (with an iron I believe). Eliminate that part of my tape damage. During playback and transfer, they keep adjusting the heads to track just right. That's what I believe they're doing now. I'm confident they could remaster my June 9/10 box set, 1973 tapes and get a better high-end result than I did. High-end audio spectrum is 1st part to suffer under less-than-optimal conditions. Somebody point MOTB to this idea - perhaps to the Suggestion Box?

thanks, i'm bookmarking all of these. it's hard to search the archive, because you get like 40 pages of shows, in absolutely no kind of order whatsoever. i wish you could browse auds by year, it would save lots of time.
